Warren County BackPack Program

Thank you to Rotarian Bill Clark and WCSD representative Matt Jones for presenting information on the BackPack program.

The purpose of the Warren County Backpack Program is to feed underprivileged kids in Warren County. They are currently serving 312 kids in all the attendance areas for 34 weeks each. The food packed must meet nutritional standards and a dietician makes that decision.

At the current time they are feeding about 30% of the eligible kids in the District. Eventually they would like to be able to feed all eligible kids in the k-5 grades.

There is also a “Kids in Need” program to help our kids during the school year that might need shoes, clothes, toiletries in order to attend school.IMG_1602

Rotary Club Of Warren Scholarship Winners

Our club is fortunate to be able to give out two $2000 scholarships. The scholarships are for young leaders who embodie the Rotary moto of “service above self” and the applicants need to fill out and application and write us an essay what “service above self” means to them.  This year we had close to 30 applicants and they were all very qualified candidates.  These youth not only had very good GPAs, they all were very community minded with lots of volunteering and activities.  Thank you to everyone who applied.

 

The winners of this year’s scholarships are Janelle Balas of Warren Area High School and Jonathon Buccardo of the Tidioute Charter School.  Congratulations and we wish you the best of luck.
